Abstract

If experience under the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was any guide, then passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act ("ADA") should have marked not the end of a struggle for equality but its beginning. The author offers some initial reflections on the ADA and its constitutionality soon after the passage of the Act.

Keywords: Americans with Disabilities Act, ADA, civil rights, constitutionality
